    Oh, I’m so glad to see Chandler Burr mentioned here. I’ve been an admirer of his books, reviews and exhibitions for years. I think he has done more for the art, heart, soul and business of perfume than any other individual I can think of. Whether you know his work or not, you have benefited from it.

      He has certainly contributed to a more widespread appreciation of perfume as an art form. The exhibit sounds interesting!

    Hmmm, colour me skeptical but the play looks way more fun than the exhibition.

    • Robin says:

      It sounds very similar to the inaugural exhibit at MAD…maybe a bit smaller? But they give relatively few details at the Wallis Annenberg website, so hard to say.
